JAMB Breakdown of Approved Fees for 2024 UTME/Direct Entry Registration

Candidates registering for the 2024 JAMB examination would have noticed a huge imbalance in the registration fee when compared to other years. Both parents and students are complaining about the fee increase, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) decided to release the breakdown of approved fees for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) registrations.

The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) are both conducted by JAMB. While the UTME exercise is an entry-level examination for candidates seeking tertiary education, the Direct Entry (DE) is for candidates who already possess a diploma certificate from Polytechnics and other tertiary institutions, and wish to apply for a degree programme in the university.
